Try compiling with -fstack-protector-strong. If that's not enough you'll
need to add -fstack-protector-strong to your glibc. The easiest way to
do that is to install an Arch based distro and install inetutils-git
from the AUR with the patch removed.


All you're going to see is a crash which isn't very interesting.

The patch works. I see sizeof is why just changing the buffer size did
not produce a useful result.
